Unitisation

It’s good to think in Units – that is to say what is the ideal size of the chunk of product/service. For example a one-week supply, an hour’s rent, a day’s rent. This helps work out how much and when it is needed.
And helps with costing.
Supply chain #1
Who by and where could this product
or service be produced? Is it available already?

Supply chain #2
How could this product or service
be delivered to your group? Think about pick-up points.
Payment #1
Who pays whom for what and how often. Pay on delivery? The advantages of pre-pay. Especially subscription.
Do you need to create a purchasing cooperative
or can you just have a mutual agreement you all sign, or does one of you have a company who will act as a fiscal sponsor.

Payment #2
Is a repair fund needed?
Administering sales takes actual work. Will you appoint someone (paid) to do that work?
